New Summer with Flip-flops!

We are almost at the half-way point of summer break. Of course, here in Oregon our summer lasts through the first few weeks of October before those dreaded rains and gray skies move in (for 6 months!!)

Today my boys finally realized that when I say "I've got a class" or "I'm working" that I mean for my company. My middle guy actually thought that I was attending card classes, not teaching them. Hah! Now they want to design cards for people to make. I think maybe we'll give that a shot for their friends! And maybe I'll get a chance to post their creations, too.

On to the last of my summer cards. I'll be taking a break and vacationing with family, cleaning out old papers and making a stack of donatable craft items (here's where I donate.) And of course, designing fall and winter classes, too. Here's what I made this weekend:
This 3" x 6" card has an embossed label that reads "Summer Fun"
This card is a little bohemian in style and has a 3-D paper ribbon and gemstones

This card is just too cute with little flip-flops on the front with retro paper and a layered flower.
Do you remember when we used to call "flip-flops" thongs? It took a while to get into the hang of calling them flip-flops....many embarrassing moments ;)

I am having a lovely about you?

Sprinkler Fun!

With the temps in the mid to high 90s this last week, we beat the heat by playing in our own walk-through sprinkler.

You can read more on my family blog: My 3 Bugs.

Hope you are enjoying your summer!

Fruits of Summer

I hope you had a fun and relaxing Fourth of July Holiday!

We were able to get a few things done around the house, spend lots of time together BBq'ing and playing and I was even granted a few hours of creativity time to make a few cards I had sketched out a few weeks ago. All of these cards have a central theme of both fruit as well as glass-bead stickers. The last card has the sticker on the inside and it reads "Sweet Thing".
This card has a velum lemonade "glass" paper straw and sticker lemon garnish.
The Strawberry card is very sweet.

The orange and green card has the sweet sticker inside, if you choose. The remaining stickers in the pack are yours to keep!

The temperatures will be creeping up into the high 90s this week...I can't wait to show you what Mr. Dude made today, to help the boys stay cool. Come back and see it on Wednesday!
